Tuition Grant Program
Tuition Grants to Other Accredited Institutions
NOTE: The Tuition Grant Program is no longer available for full time employees whose employment date is subsequent to December 1, 2011.
Eligibility: Natural or legally adopted children, never married and begin receiving the benefit before age 25, of tenured faculty members, and Deans/VPs.
Benefit: Tuition grants will be remitted at any other accredited college or university in the United States, up to a maximum of Rhodes published tuition price and mandatory fees. It is assumed, under this policy, that each student will make every appropriate effort to take advantage of scholarships offered by the other institutions or by any other agency. Rhodes will pay toward the student’s total bill the smallest of the following three amounts:
- The current tuition and mandatory fees charged by Rhodes.
- The tuition and mandatory fees charged by the college or university the student is attending.
- The tuition, room, board, and mandatory fees charged by the college or university the student is attending less all grants and scholarships received by the student, regardless of the source of the grants and scholarships.
Some institutions have general, non-refundable fees that are required of all students. To the extent that such fees at a particular institution cover some of the same services that are included at Rhodes under Rhodes comprehensive tuition, then such fees will be construed as a part of that institution′s tuition.
Maximum Benefit: There shall be a limitation of four academic years (or the equivalent thereof) of baccalaureate study for each eligible child of a tenured faculty member. Enrollment for more than four academic years and/or after the receipt of a baccalaureate degree will not qualify for tuition grants.
All tuition grant payments under this benefit are considered taxable income and are subject to applicable withholding taxes.
Note: The Rhodes College Handbook is not a contract of employment, nor should it be construed to create a contract with the College. Rhodes reserves the right to make future changes to its policies, practices, and fringe benefits. If such changes occur, the College will inform employees of such changes and their effect, if any.
